    Hello, How do I choose which week to go in May 2012? Planning first family trip for my son's 5th birthday. I know I have to wait until August for 2012 rates to come out but unsure of how to choose the best time to go. We hear May is off season rates.

    Hi Sarah!

    While the 2012 rates are not yet out, I can tell you that May 2011 was considered "Regular Season" rates. The easiest way to take a look at a resort's room rates and categories is to visit a specific resort on and then to click "room types & pricing. For example, the room types and pricing for Animal Kingdom Lodge shows May 2011 to be in the regular season. Using the drop down on that page will allow you to see the different seasons and rates throughout the year.

    Personally, I think May is a great time to visit! If you're looking for some lower crowd weekends, I'd personally pick earlier in May and avoid the Memorial Day holiday.

    Hope this helps!
